October Nailart Challenge-Day 28- Monster nails

20131101-144931.jpg

So for one of the final days of the challenge the theme was monsters so I thought I would do all the classic monsters, starting off with my pinkie nails as a werewolf, my ring finger as a vampire, my middle as a mummy and finally my index as Frankenstein.

So for my pinkie I firstly used OPI’s ‘I Don’t Give A Rotterdam!’ Then using my small paintbrush painting the eyes on using China Glaze’s ‘Liquid Leather’, then using my paintbrush painting the two yellow slits of the eye Iris’s using OPI’s ‘Fiercely Fiona’.

For my ring finger I firstly painted the nail using OPI’s ‘Big Apple Red’ then using liquid leather for the middle leaving some of the red at my cuticle and free edge. Then using my small paint brush and China Glaze’s ‘White on White’ painting on the teeth.

For my middle finger I used White on White on the whole of my nail, then using liquid leather to hand paint on the stripes diagonally and the diamond shape in the middle for the face hole, then used a dotting tool for the eyes.

Finally for my index finger I used OPI’s ‘Green-Wich Village’ on my nail, then liquid leather for the hair mouth scar, forehead scar and eyes.

For the rest of my nails I painted them with Liquid Leather and then I topped them off with Seche Vite.

October Nailart Challenge-Day 25-Blood Nails

As I have done Blood drip nails quite a few times I decided to try something different and do the drips originating from another source. So rather than having the blood dripping from the free edge of my nails I decided to have them coming from my cuticles, as if they were bleeding.

I used OPI’s ‘First Date At The Golden Gate’ and a medium sized dotting tool.

I then topped them all of with Seche Vite.

For day 22 of this challenge I decided to do some sophisticated ‘critter’ nails by choosing a sophisticated critter, the Black Widow spider.

Firstly I painted all my nails with OPI’s ‘First Date At The Golden Gate’ from the San Francisco collection.

Then using some black acrylic paint and a small paint brush I painted on the spiders, drawing them all towards the middle of my nails as if they were all gathering towards it.

Then once that was dry I topcoated with Seche Vite but before it dried I placed a red gem into the middle of each spider.

October Nailart Challenge-Day 19-Pumpkin Nails

For day 19 I decided to do something different. I didn’t want to do any spooky or scary nails I wanted to do some autumn nails instead, so firstly I painted my nails with OPI’s ‘Stranger Tides’ from the Pirates of The Caribbean collection and let them dry.

Then using OPI’s ‘Green-Wich Village’ and a makeup sponge I sponged it onto my pinkie and middle finger.

Then using a small paint brush and colours such as OPI’s ‘In My Back Pocket’, ‘Need Sunglasses?’, ‘A-Piers To Be Tan’ and ‘Jade Is The New Black’, and Essie’s ‘Mink Muffs’ to create the leaves and pumpkins.

I then topped them all off with Seche Vite.

For Day 15 of the October nailart challenge the theme was Graveyards, so I decided to use OPI’s ‘Incognito In Sausalito’ as a base for a dark spooky night. Then I used ‘Haven’t The Foggiest’ on my ring finger on 3 quarters of my nail, and be using a small paintbrush painted on the small crosses on my index finger.

Then using ‘Jade Is The New Black’ and the small paintbrush I painted on some grass, and black acrylic paint for the RIP sign.

Then I finished them off with Seche Vite.

October Nailart Challenge-Day 10-Trick Or Treat

Firstly I painted my nails with OPI’s ‘Lincoln Park After Dark’ on my pinkie, ‘In My Back Pocket’ on my ring, middle and index and ‘Green-wich Village’ on my thumb using a dotting tool.

Then I used ‘Haven’t The Foggiest’ for the cobwebs on my pinkie using a small paint brush. Then used ‘Lincoln Park After Dark’ for the trick or treat lettering and I used the small detailing paintbrush.

Finally I added OPI’s ‘Fiercly Fiona’ to the slime drips into the corners.

October Nailart Challenge-Day 7-Patterns

20131027-220852.jpg

For day 7 of the nailart challenge and then theme of patterns I decided to go crazy and completely mix and match mine.

Using OPI’s ‘My Address Is Hollywood’ as a base for all my nails, then ‘In The Cable Car-Pool Lane’for the patterns, aswell as ‘Alpine Snow’ and ‘Lincoln Park After Dark’ for my index.

So for the chevron pinkie nail I used a small paintbrush to paint on the pattern, same for my ring finger by dividing the nail into three and alternating the colours and direction. Then for the houndstooth nail I painted on tiny squares, then placed two small lines in the bottom corners, then joining up the squares with diagonal lines. Then finally for the index finger I painted the black criss cross lines first, then added the white sections around them and in the middle, making sure to leave some pink, then finally added the purple into the corners.

Then I topped them all off with Seche Vite.
